Building Brand Representation Across Multiple Platforms 2/27/2017
Omni-channel is far more than a marketing term. It represents how brands enable consumers to use various channels to engage. It is now up to marketers to provide a seamless experience, regardless of channel or device. Consumers engage with a brand in a physical store, an online website or mobile app, or through social media.
For retailers and suppliers alike, it is vital that each leg of the consumer’s journey be consistent and complementary. To represent a brand experience across multiple channels, brands must understand how and why consumers engage with each platform. Then they must convey their message and attributes consistently through the diverse capabilities of different channels.
